The Playstation 5 restock is on the way. With E3 2019, Sony had one of the most anticipated gaming events of the year and they finally revealed the next-generation console: the PS5.
Why the PS5 is going to be hard to find
If the PS4 and PS4 Pro are anything to go by, getting your hands on a console on release is going to be a problem. Not because it’s not a good console, but because it was too early for it. This means the consoles were not up to par in terms of their potential sales (assuming they didn’t price it way out of reach), and that is why they are harder to buy at launch. Sony’s last console was PS3 and you would have to go to a trusted member of the forums to find a stock of it if it was not already sold out. The PlayStation 5 could be much harder to find Sony has made a few mistakes when it comes to keeping their products in stock when the PlayStation 4 first came out.
How to find the PS5 in stock
Right now there are two ways to try and pick up a PS5. On the surface, it’s a bit easier than the Xbox One X. Microsoft’s new console isn’t currently on sale and has been out for a while now. Sony, however, hasn’t confirmed a release date yet, which means that there is potential to try and pick up a PS5 at launch. The most obvious place to try and find the PS5 is through the Sony Store. For those of you who aren’t savvy, the best way to do this is to go to the storefront on your PS4, PlayStation TV or PS Vita and click on the system settings button. This will take you to a menu that’s supposed to show you your PSN account, but is more likely to give you error messages, similar to what we saw when PlayStation Now first launched.

The Playstation 5 restock price
At the moment, Sony is setting the price for the PS5 at $399 US or €399 Euro. In comparison, the Xbox One X starts at $499 and the Nintendo Switch starts at $299. In 2018, Nintendo revealed its plan to lower the price of the Switch and launched a smaller version, called the Nintendo Switch Mini at $199. The NES Classic mini, another product that was super hot last year, is now $59.99 in stock. Of course, the $199 Nintendo Switch Mini isn’t comparable to the actual console, because the Nintendo Switch Mini does not come with any games and it is just a mini version of the regular version of the Nintendo Switch console. The actual PS5 games won’t come bundled with the console either, but the Xbox games are included.
Until now, the playstation 5 restock has referred to as a “millennial” console that will succeed the PS4. We now have official confirmation that Sony will be launching their new console in 2019, and it will be able to handle 4K gaming. But you should know that the PS5 will not be easy to find when it is release. It is inevitable that Sony will want to stock enough of their console in order to combat the competition. It is the same situation right now when it comes to the Nintendo Switch. Even the best retailers in the country struggle to get Nintendo Switch consoles in stock. And as good as they are at manufacturing the console, their supply chain is too large to scale in a meaningful way. So retailers have to resort to the secondary market.
